Bodies

I’m sick

of the blood,

the bodies,

and the I-told-you-so grins

curling on the faces of these

blank-eyed cynics,

 

who have the giant

testicles

to paint“hypocrite”

in red letters

on MY front door

because the mangled body

I’m crying over

is wearing a tank top.

 

And somehow

the pointed fingers

land on me,

like I’m the one who

slammed my palms over the detonator

so I could dance on the graves

dug in the bloody sand across the sea

just because those mangled bodies

happened to wear

turbans.

 

I cried for them, too,

you bastards.

 

And you shout

a million fucking times

that war is not the answer.

 

I KNOW THAT.

 

But unless the next words

that dribble out your mouth

are a plan,

do us all a favor

and keep it shut.
